Wimpy Does His Popeye Imitation
8 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wimpy will do just about anything for some hamburgers, even impersonate Popeye, which he does here in this cartoon.

In this story, Popeye and Wimpy are roommates in some fleabag place.Both are sleeping when the phone rings. It's Olive inviting Popeye over for a hamburger dinner. Wimpy overhears this and quickly dons a complete Popeye outfit. Soon, the two of them are walking side-by-side to Olive's house. Popeye, of course, freaks out when he sees "himself" next to him!

How he handles this, and how Olive handles it when the two of them arrive at her door, provides most of the jokes in this so-so cartoon. Of course, the whole thing has no credibility, but it's a cartoon, so it isn't expected to make a lot of sense. Popeye and Olive couldn't see Wimpy was wearing a plastic mask? You know, that sort of credibility thing.

Although truth wins out, Wimpy made out for the most of the cartoon, meaning he got the hamburgers, even if he did have to run for his life at the end. Actually, so did Popeye but how that happened, I'll let you watch. I saw this on Volume Two of the Popeye The Sailor DVDs.
